Truly Life Changing
Julie became an answered prayer- through her work, this podcast, and her undeniably genuine heart. Losing one of my daughters was the undoing of who I thought I was. Julie helped lead me out of my darkness and severe pain with the most tender care, patience, and love. I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for Julie's much needed help, thoughtfulness and love. The tools she has given has changed my life and I now experience real Hope, Love her myself, a renewed confidence and so much more!! Her voice is as soothing as the balm she has given to aid in the mending of my heart.
My friend recommended this podcast and I’ve listened to three episodes so far. I have spent years feeling victimized by my losses and stuck in circumstances that I wish I could change. I am always trying new and different things but then quit/give up because my circumstances don’t change. Julie has made wonderful suggestions and ideas that have sparked hope for me and opened the door to realizing that the only thing I can change is me. I love the calming, peaceful feeling I get from her!
Messages of Hope
Just a few months after my son passed away, a friend of mine shared this podcast with me. I started listening and felt so drawn to Julie. She explains grief so well and teaches tools on how to move forward with your life. I also chose to hire Julie as a grief counselor and am so thankful I did. There are still hard moments but Julie has taught me how to work through those moments and not get stuck in grief forever. My outlook on the future is brighter and my relationships closest to me has been strengthened because of Julie’s messages. 💜
